What You Can Expect

Experience Paris: Baguette and Croissant Workshop

Learn how to make your very own French baguettes!

Make your way to your traditional bakery in the heart of Paris, where you'll go into the kitchens for a behind-the-scenes lesson to learn the secrets of French bread.

A Parisian baker guides you through the lesson, during which you'll make two different kinds of baguettes as well as buttery, flaky croissants. Watch as your instructor demonstrates the proper techniques for preparing and handling dough, and then try your hand at recreating what you've just seen — with help as you need it. As you watch and work, listen to your instructor's tips to glean the secrets of French baking.

The pay-off for all your hard work is in taking your own freshly-baked baguette out of the oven and tasting it while it's still warm. When the workshop is finished, you'll have two baguettes and two croissants to take with you for a later picnic, as well as the recipes and know-how to recreate the experience in your own kitchen at home.

Such a fun and learning experience! Chef Didier Lavry of Le Petit Mitron gave us so much of his time and shared his passion for this profession. We were all inspired to go home and get elbow deep in flour! Such a great experience I will never forget!

This was a highlight of our Paris trip. Baker Didier is full of personality and charm and our translator was great. Didn't receive the recipes as promised, however.

Very good day - Didier the Baker was great and so was the translator. I will now be looking for some more European food tours. We learnt a huge amount about baking. On a separate issue can you give me some idea as to when I will receive the recipes for the Baguettes/Croissants.

This was an excellent experience! The chef was incredibly personable and the translator was fantastic. We felt we really learned the traditional methods involved in making croissants and baguettes. It was very hands on and we had a great time! I highly recommend!!!

My husband and I loved being in the heart of a working bakery. Not just any bakery but one making bread and croissants at the highest level. The Baker was very welcoming and gave us great information about the process, French baking, and many tips to help us recreate baked breads at home. The Intrepeter was delightful as well. We enjoyed our small group and will be using the information and experience gained for our family and friends' benefit.
We loved eating our own products and several other delights we purchased.
This is the real deal and for me a dream come true!
